The Aguila in Villa Argentina
The unique monument The Eagle is one of the icons of Atlantis, but in reality it is located two kilometers from the resort, Villa Argentina. By its strange shape and mysterious story, this construction is a mandatory check point of any tour Atlantis. It is located right on the ocean, and from within a beautiful coastal view is obtained.
A visit to the Aguila
What everyone knows as “The Eagle” was built in 1945 under the name “Chimera”. Its owner was the legendary Natalio Michelizzi, the great promoter of the spa, also responsible for the Hotel Palace. The design and construction were made by Juan Torres, who raised the house completely handmade. The windows of the room were the “eyes” of the eagle, a gazebo today visited by scores of tourists daily.
Several legends make it even more interesting to visit the Eagle. Some say it was a hideout for smugglers, while others say there Michelizzi hid an alchemist laboratory. For others, the Chimera was used as a chapel and even that was a Nazi shelter during World War II. No one knows for sure what was its original purpose. The truth is that the mystique of the place continues to captivate its visitors.
You can enter the Eagle between 9 and 19:30 during summer and between 9 and 18 in winter. It is accessed through the kilometer 43 of the Interbalnearia Road.
